Donuts! for Chrome?? :-O

Was on my Orkut account, and I noticed the message in the redbox. Now, where will I get these donuts???

ps: I drew that redbox and the horns on my pic. Just to scare a few folks and make them spill their morning coffee 🙂

Welcome to Chromium – A browser that thrills…

I was lucky enough to check the Google page today just before sleeping and lo behold!! today, Google launched a new web browser called Google Chrome. Google says “Google Chrome is a browser that combines a minimal design with sophisticated technology to make the web faster, safer, and easier.”

First impressions are that it has a clean look, loads the webpages faster than FireFox(FF) and Internet Explorer(IE) and has a very minimal memory footprint. It’s superfast because of the V8 javascript engine (developed at Google) and they say they have used components from Apple’s WebKit and Mozilla’s Firefox (especially the plugins feature and the download manager), which makes it even more worth trying. There are some cool features that are native to it. Try and find them.
Google, has also released the source code for the web browser. Go open source!!!
